The film is a well-written commercial with a little sub-plot about two children (the boy is wearing a suit and bow tie) on a thousand-mile trip.
Railroads pay taxes, you know. As if other businesses don't,
Editing is plentiful to hold interest and sound effects are well-chosen. A fine Dudley production.
Oh, and there's plenty of flag-waving at the beginning and end. America's the greatest, you know. Americans can travel by train when they want, not like people in certain unnamed countries (read Commie Land). All the glorious aspects enumerated about the USA could describe Canada, too, but that's another story.
Subject: Beautiful snapshot American history
What was with the ending: "Railroads pay taxes for schools?" Most scenes appeared to be college footage, not public schools.
Propaganda, silly script, and bad graphics places this up there with the classic "Duck & Cover."
Thanks to the person who saved this treasure.
